Trump Dragged For Claiming Baseball Is 'Not Appropriate' After MLB Moves All-Star Game To Denver

The MLB (Major League Baseball) recently announced it would be moving its annual all-star game, which was going to be held in Atlanta, to Denver in protest of Georgia's new, discriminatory voter restriction law.

Many conservatives expressed frustration with the MLB for their decision, which holds Republicans somewhat accountable for their attempts at voter suppression.

While being interviewed by Newsmax host Heather Childers, former President Donald Trump took aim not only at the MLB's decision, but at the entire sport of baseball.

Trump said to Childers:

"A woke group of people—and that's baseball—and people are tired of it—they decided to hurt the people of Georgia by moving it out and it's just ridiculous."

Childers asked:

"So should we boycott baseball?"

In typical rambling fashion, the former President responded:

"Look, I'm just not very interested in baseball for the last number of years. I think it's not appropriate. You want to find a game? It's on every channel yet you can't find anything. It's the weirdest thing. It used to be a nice, easy thing to follow."
"Today, you don't even know what the hell you're watching. I would say boycott baseball, why not? I think what they did was a terrible thing."


Many on Twitter found the Trump's bizarre rant about baseball being on too many channels hilariously strange.



Many online found it troubling such a petty man once held the most powerful office in the country.


Trump has a long, sad history with baseball.



If Trump wants Americans to stop watching baseball, he's likely going to be pretty disappointed.



It's a good thing Trump isn't on Twitter anymore—the inevitable mockery that follows an opinion like this one would be too much for him to handle.
